American exchange student Kate Bordessa has fled to Russia to escape her family's hopes that she'll become one of the Proffered, human women who feed and mate with elite vampire warriors. But when she stumbles upon a wounded vampire in the streets of Moscow, she's instinctively driven to protect him--and feels an undeniable spark of desire.
Grieving over the deaths of his brothers, Vampire Warrior King Nikolai Vasilyev has thrown himself into battling his enemies, focused only on vengeance. Until the attack that brought him to Kate. Their sexual attraction explodes into a night of uncontrolled passion--a night that marks them as mates. Is their connection strong enough to convince them to embrace a destiny neither of them was expecting?

Crystal’s Thoughts:


Kate Bordessa was raised to be a proffered, a human virgin who is offered to a vampire warrior for substance and sex. But Kate doesn’t want any part of that life or the life her parents wish for her and so she escapes to Russia. While walking the streets of Moscow though Kate comes across a wounded man that she recognizes as a vampire. Unable to leave him, Kate protects the vampire from his foes and cares for him.
Vampire Warrior King Nikolai Vasilyev is on a path of destruction. Seeking vengeance for the deaths of his brothers-in-arms, he cares little about his station and less about his own safety despite the grumblings of his comrades. When he’s brought down in an attack though, Nikolai finds not only healing but solace in the arms of a human female.
Passion quickly ignites between Kate and Nikolai and they find themselves in a position they never expected, nor wanted.

I loved, loved, loved Seduced by the Vampire! In the first book of the series, In the Service of the King, I had a bit of a problem connecting to the main characters but that was not a problem here! Nikolai and Kate popped from the pages with depth and emotion while the story line instantly hooked. There was action, excitement, muay sexual tension and gratification, and all packed into a novella that was less than a 100 pages! And I just adore the unique world/vampire society that Laura Kaye has created in this series; it will quickly draw you in from the start and even by the end you’ll be clinging on the edge for more.

Seduced by the Vampire King can be read as a stand-alone but to get a better understanding of the world-building I would recommend reading the first book, In the Service of the King, before diving into Seduced by the Vampire King. Laura Kaye delivers a sizzling hot novella that you will blaze through, I can’t wait to read more about these vampire warriors and their kings!

I agree 100%! This story (and so far series) rocked! I loved Nikoli & Kate's instant chemistry! I love the 'girl saves the guy' storyline. And Kate was fierce! I liked her instantly. My only complaint was that it could have been longer ;) I really hope Mikhale gets his own story next!!!
